What do all the icons above my email mean?

When you open an email in PSMail, you’ve probably noticed the bar of icons across the top of your message. Ever wonder what they all mean? These icons represent the variety of options we’ve provided you with as you read, respond to, and interact with your emails. Many of them are self-explanatory, but a few might be a bit tricky

See below for a picture and brief explanation of each icon. Happy emailing!
